Veteran actress Nutan would have been 85 today. On her birthday anniversary, her son and actor Mohnish Bahl made a trip down memory lane and posted a black and white of the late actress on his Instagram profile. The throwback gem features Nutan wearing what appears to be a saree and smiling at the camera. "Happy birthday, Ma," wrote Mohnish Bahl for Nutan in his post. Nutan was born on June 4 in 1936 to director-poet Kumarsen Samarth and actress Shobhna. Nutan's sister Tanuja is also an actress. Tanuja's daughters Kajol and Tanishaa are also Bollywood stars.
